A student who wants to withdraw from the University officially must complete the Withdrawal of Study Form and return the completed form to the student's home Faculty Office. Upon withdrawal from the University, you are required to surrender the Student Registration Card to your Faculty Office. Only those who have completed the formal procedures for withdrawal and have settled all outstanding accounts will be entitled to receive a refund of caution money.

Students should note that they are liable to pay the annual composition fee despite their withdrawal from studies at any time during the academic year. Withdrawal from study does not remove the need to settle any outstanding financial payments or financial aid obligations due to the University or financial aid office(s).

Discontinuation of Studies

If your performance is unsatisfactory, the Board of your Faculty (or the appropriate committee) may recommend, under the provision of General Regulation G11 and where applicable in accordance with the regulations governing your study curriculum, that you be required to discontinue your studies. You will be accordingly informed by the Faculty Secretary (or the relevant committee secretary). Your case will be considered in the first instance by the Faculty Review Committee and a decision will be taken as to whether your case is referred to the Senate Committee on Discontinuation for a final decision. For both committees, you will be asked by the respective committee secretaries if you wish to make a written representation in respect of your failure(s) or unsatisfactory performance and you will be invited to appear before the committees. You will be formally informed of the detailed arrangements for the meetings.
